1Bring 1 cup water to a boil in a pot.

2Turn off heat and whisk in dry grits, stirring vigorously to avoid lumps.

3Heat over low until creamy and the consistency of heavy mashed potatoes.

4Meanwhile, steam green beans.

5In a large skillet, whisk together 1⁄4-cup water, Worcestershire sauce, maple syrup, and liquid smoke.
